So I have try the for at least 40 sessions, on 4 different spots, for twintip freestyling sessions or downwind. First of all, it doesn't mesure jumps at all. 90% of the time it says 0 jump a session when I have done at least 30 of them + other tricks . Then the jibe score : I seriously don't understand how is it calculate because I have the impression that the worst are my jibe, the best is my score. Same with the "skill score" , saying totally the opposite of the reality. Nore over I really don't like the idea of a skill score. It's not good spirit as most of the users are not running championship. The last but not the least, I don't understand some of the scrren on my watch during the session.. All those graphics doesn't seems working as it didn't provide me any information.

20 min test trial is ridiculos.

You must be kidding me to ask to pay $18 before allowing at least 1 session trial. Keep in mind you have some bad reviews which will deter people from paying blindly before being able to test (like me). You're saying there is a simulator mode... Mate, how does this test anything. Silly.

This feature will be available in the next release of the app. The user will have the possibility to test and use the app for a while (for example 15 or 20 mn) so, all the graphs and data of the session will be saved into the FIT file for this trial period.

Don Gregoire

A little advice! You might get more subscribers if you at least allowed a 5 hr trial for free. This allows us to give it a try first instead of just asking for payment. My 2 cents worth.

Hello Gregoire and thanks for your comment. The app contains a simulator that you can launch within the app to see the app in action, like you were in a real session, and this tool is available even for non registered users. So with it, the user can test the application as if he were actually using it in real navigation, but with random data. This tool is accessible via the "Tools - Simulator" menu.

It’s not fair, why do you need to purchase premium just to record an activity? Why not disable some data field screens instead so we can still use the app for free?

Raphael Chabaud

I bought this app but I don't use it. The UI is way too complex. It tries to do too many things and end up doing them badly. I use kite metrics instead. It's more simple, better and free.

Bonjour Raphael et merci pour votre commentaire. L'application peut paraître complexe mais, à son utilisation, elle est en fait très simple: saisir les 2 données de vent (axe + vitesse), le matériel utilisé (optionnel), et c'est parti, tout le reste s'effectue tout seul, en tâches de fond ! Il existe également la possibilité d'afficher un écran minimaliste, qui permet de ne présenter à l'écran que 3 données seulement, en gros caractères, choisies parmi une liste selon les besoins du rider. Par ailleurs, un très grand nombre de riders souhaitent bénéficier d'un maximum de données pour leurs sessions, cette application leur apporte donc tout ce dont ils ont besoin, avec fiabilité et précision quant à l'exactitude des données calculées. Il est toujours difficile de satisfaire tout le monde, certains souhaitent plutôt quelque chose de minimaliste, quand d'autres préfèrent avoir le maximum de données, cette application apporte l'un, et l'autre.

très bonne application ,prend énormement de batterie ,dommage qu'il n'y est pas d'enregistrement 2s ,5s ,la vitesse max pris sur 10 secondes enregistré suivant l'état de la houle nous donne pas notre maximum en pointe (10 seconde en windsurf c'est très long )

Developer Reply

Merci Bordes pour votre commentaire. La consommation de batterie résulte du nombre très important de calculs effectués en temps réel, on ne peut bénéficier de toutes les données calculées simultanément par l'application sans que cela ait un minimum de coût... énergétique. Ceci dit, avec une montre de type outdoor, vous tenez plus d'une journée de session sans problème. Quant aux top speeds sur 2 et 5 secondes, top speed sur run entre 2 jibes, etc, cela sera ajouté ultérieurement, dans une future version, c'est prévu.

Congrats for the effort! Really worth the small price we have to pay

Excellent app. Been using it for kitesurfing for over a year. Most importantly the developper loves what he does and he is always there to help and open to make improvements. Thanks Jean Michel, and congratulations.

Hello Rodrigo and thanks a lot for your comment and compliments. As a windsurfer too, I do all my best to ensure that this application is the best possible and satisfies as many riders as possible.

Great App! Very complete and usefull! Worth the money! I was wondering if it's possible to count the number of jumps during a session. It would be perfect!

Hello Giuliano, and thanks for your nice comment. It was already in my todo list so, your suggestion will be implemented soon, probably in the next release of the app.

Nope, can’t record anything without payment and therefore is useless

Un véritable bijou ! La précision et le volume de contenus que propose l'application reflète un véritable travail d'orfèvre. L'application paraît un peu chargée au depart, mais à l'utilisation elle s'avère très claire et très intuitive. Je vois certains commentaires de personnes mécontentes car l'application est payante, mais le rapport qualité/prix est très satisfaisante et le quantité de travail fourni par le développeur mérite bien cette somme (que je trouve dérisoire face au rendu fi al de l'application). La synthèse sur le Garmin connect est juste jouissive de precision ! Merci au développeur, et pour ceux qui sont encore sceptique : allez y les yeux fermés si vous êtes connaisseur et gourmand de données de navigation !

Koopa Taroopa
August 9, 2020 | Version 2.87

Écoutez, cette application est vraiment injuste. Vous ne pouvez littéralement rien faire avec lui jusqu'à l'achat, donc les gens vont rapidement désinstaller après 5 secondes parce qu'ils veulent quelque chose de gratuit. Au lieu de cela, vous devez verrouiller certains écrans ou champs de données afin de pouvoir toujours enregistrer les activités. Cela rendra les gens comme vous davantage.

C'est normal actuellement car les serveurs chez Garmin ont subi une attaque ransomware mercredi dernier donc, il faut encore attendre un peu avant que la situation ne revienne à la normale. Mais depuis ce jour, vous pouvez installer ou mettre à jour des applications avec Garmin Express (mais encore avec Connect). Voir le status de la situation ici: https://connect.garmin.com/status/
